Muratov won the prize in 2021 alongside journalist Maria Ressa of the Philippines, with the committee honoring them "for their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression." Muratov's paper in March suspended operations in Russia, after Moscow adopted legislation providing for tough jail terms against anyone criticizing the Kremlin's bloody military campaign in Ukraine. Muratov was among a group of journalists who founded Novaya Gazeta in 1993 after the fall of the Soviet Union. This year it became the only major newspaper left voicing criticism of President Vladimir Putin and his tactics inside and outside the country. The announcement that it was suspending operations came more than a month into Moscow's invasion of Ukraine. Heritage Auctions is handling the sale of Muratov's Nobel Medal, which is on the block both online and in person, with the final sale slated for Monday evening in Manhattan. As of Monday morning the bid stood at $550,000. The proceeds will go to UNICEF's

07:03 Arxiv.org Physics Preprint: Institutional Value of a Nobel Prize. (arXiv:2205.04857v1 [physics.soc-ph])

The Nobel Prize is awarded each year to individuals who have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind in Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Economics, Literature, and Peace, and is considered by many to be the most prestigious recognition for one's body of work. Receiving a Nobel prize confers a sense of financial independence and significant prestige, vaulting its recipients to global prominence. Apart from the prize money (approximately US$1,145,000), a Nobel laureate can expect to benefit in a number of ways, including increased success in securing grants, wider adoption and promulgation of one's theories and ideas, increased professional and academic opportunities, and, in some cases, a measure of celebrity. A Nobel laureate's affiliated institution, by extension, also greatly benefits. Because of this, many institutions seek to employ Nobel Prize winners or individuals who have a high likelihood of winning one in the future. Many of the recent discoveries and innovations recognized

13:32 RFI.fr Social media threatening press freedom: Nobel laureate

The situation for media workers around the world at the moment is "bleak", Ressa told AFP in an interview, saying much of the blame lies with the dramatic shift in the way information is distributed. Speaking on the sidelines of an event in Geneva on Tuesday to mark World Press Freedom Day, the 58-year-old co-founder of the news website Rappler highlighted how social media had made it far easier to spread propaganda, reject facts and change historical realities. She pointed to the Philippines, which appears set next week to hand the presidency to Ferdinand Marcos Jr, whose dictator father and namesake presided over massive plunder and human rights abuses in the country. "He looks set to win, and the only way that is possible is because history shifted in front of our eyes," Ressa said. Marcos Jr's links to his father have made him one of the nation's most polarising politicians. But he has benefitted from a deluge of fake and misleading posts on social media platforms targeting a

"I would not rule out the possibility that nuclear weapons might be used," Muratov told journalists in Geneva, speaking through a translator. The Kremlin said it had placed Russian nuclear forces on high alert shortly after its invasion of Ukraine began February 24. And amid increasing Western support to Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin has made thinly veiled threats hinting at a willingness to deploy Russia's tactical nuclear weapons, which Russian military doctrine holds can be used to force an adversary to retreat. Speaking at an event marking the World Press Freedom Day, Muratov, whose own Novaya Gazata newspaper has been forced to suspend publication amid Moscow's military intervention, warned that the Kremlin's "propaganda warriors" were striving to make nuclear weapons use more palatable to the Russian public. "For two weeks now, we have been hearing from our television screens that nuclear silos should be opened," he said. "And we also hear that these horrible weapons

The 86-year-old writer "has beaten Covid. Now he's going home to continue his recovery," his son Alvaro Vargas Llosa tweeted, thanking the medical staff at the clinic. He went in for treatment last week following "complications caused by coronavirus", his son tweeted on Friday, saying he had entered the clinic "a few days ago" with his condition "progressing favourably". The tweet was also signed by the writer's two other children Gonzalo and Morgana. Born in Peru in 1936, Vargas Llosa took Spanish citizenship in 1993. At the beginning of April, he published his latest work, "The Quiet Gaze (of Perez Galdos)", an essay on the Spanish writer Benito Perez Galdos (1843-1920). The last survivor of a golden generation of Latin American literary giants, Vargas Llosa's writing explores universal themes often set outside his native Peru. Admired for his depiction of social realities, but criticised within Latin American intellectual circles for his conservative positions, Vargas Llosa is a

"An unknown assailant attacked the chief editor of Novaya Gazeta and Nobel prize winner in a train coach," the independent publication said via Telegram. "He threw oil-based paint mixed with acetone into the compartment. He shouted, 'Muratov, that's for our boys'," the paper quoted Muratov as saying, in apparent allusion to Russian casualties in the Ukraine war. My eyes are burning terribly. I am going to try to wash it off," Muratov was quoted as saying after the attack on a train headed from Moscow to the southeastern city of Samara. The report was accompanied by two pictures of Muratov-- one showing him apparently in a train toilet with his head, torso and arms covered with a red substance. The second photo showed the train coach daubed with a substantial quantity of blood red-coloured liquid. "Muratov received first aid and took his train to go and see his mother ...

The announcement came as the media group also announced it was leaving Russia over the country's invasion of Ukraine. "With what we are currently witnessing in Ukraine from the Russian authorities, it is impossible for Amedia to continue the printing business in the country," Amedia chief executive Anders Moller Opdahl said in a statement. "Amedia is now withdrawing, in a way that leaves control to Peace Prize laureate Muratov," Opdahl added. Board chairman Andre Stoylen said the company believed this was "the best possible solution given the prevailing circumstances." "In this way, the printing houses will be able to continue being important for independent media in Russia in the future," Stoylen said. Muratov, who together with Maria Ressa of the Philippines was awarded the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, would have full control of daily operations and "exercise all shareholder rights at his own discretion" of the four printing houses wholly owned by Amedia's Russian subsidiary.

He said that Moscow's ability to conduct the war in Ukraine would be impaired by the repercussions from sanctions on its economy. "They've lost an enormous amount of military equipment... that they will need to replace," he told AFP in an interview on the sidelines of a conference in Paris on Europe's future. Whether Russia has the manufacturing and financial capacity is, however, "really questionable", he said. A major element in the potential success of sanctions is their "rapid imposition", he added. "I think it is important because when you notch it up gradually, they can adapt." Washington and its EU allies have imposed unprecedented economic sanctions on Russia in response to Moscow's military onslaught against its pro-EU neighbour. But it's hard to know whether the impact of the sanctions on the Russian people and oligarchs could push President Vladimir Putin into easing his position on Ukraine and its invasion, Stiglitz said.

"As Prime Minister and winner of the Peace Prize, Abiy Ahmed has a special responsibility to end the conflict and contribute to peace," Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the committee, said in a statement to AFP. Northern Ethiopia has been beset by conflict since November 2020 when Ahmed sent troops into Tigray after accusing the region's ruling party, the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF), of attacks on federal army camps. The fighting between forces loyal to Abiy and the TPLF and their allies has killed thousands of people and forced several million from their homes. Tigray is under what the United Nations calls a de facto blockade that is preventing life-saving medicine and food from reaching millions, including hundreds of thousands in famine-like conditions.

Italian physicist Giorgio Parisi will receive a shared Nobel prize at a ceremony Monday, but behind the celebrations is consternation at the brain-drain that for years has seen many young scientists leave to work abroad.

06:38 RFI.fr Physics Nobel belies Italy's scientific brain drain

Some 14,000 Italian researchers quit the country between 2009 and 2015, according to Italy's national statistics agency Istat -- a trend explained in large part by a lack of investment. "Italy is not a welcoming country for researchers, whether Italian or foreign," Parisi said in October after being awarded the Nobel prize for his work on the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems. "Research is underfunded and the situation has worsened over the past 10-15 years." Government funding fell from 9.9 billion euros ($11.2 billion) in 2007 to 8.3 billion in 2015 -- the latest figures available -- while in 2019, research spending in the eurozone's third largest economy was significantly below the EU average. As well as Parisi, Italy has produced some top scientists in recent decades, notably Carlo Rubbia, the CERN physicist who won a Nobel in 1984, and neuroembryologist Rita Levi-Montalcini, who won in 1986. But commentators note that research budgets were slashed after

12:31 RFI.fr Lawyer for Philippines' Nobel Prize winner Ressa 'confident' about Oslo trip

Ressa, co-founder of news website Rappler, and Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov were given the award in October for their efforts to "safeguard freedom of expression". The former CNN correspondent, who is on bail pending an appeal against a conviction last year in a cyber libel case, applied to three courts for permission to travel to Norway for the December 10 ceremony. The Court of Appeals, which is handling the cyber libel case, on Friday gave her the green light after rejecting government lawyers' claims that she was a "flight risk". Ressa has already received permission from a regional trial court hearing another case, according to Francis Lim, one of her lawyers. She is still waiting for the Court of Tax Appeals to rule on her travel application, but Lim said: "We are confident that it will be granted." Ressa has been a staunch critic of President Rodrigo Duterte and his government's policies, including a drug war that has killed thousands. Since Duterte was swept to power in

Ressa, co-founder of news website Rappler, and Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov were awarded the prize in October for their efforts to "safeguard freedom of expression". The former CNN correspondent, who is on bail pending an appeal against a conviction last year in a cyber libel case, has applied for court approval to travel to Norway for the December 10 ceremony. But the solicitor general has filed an objection to the Court of Appeals arguing that Ressa's right to travel was "not absolute" and she had not shown a "compelling reason" for going to Oslo, according to a copy of the document seen by AFP on Thursday. "Her recurring criticisms of the Philippine legal processes in the international community reveal her lack of respect for the judicial system which consequently makes her a flight risk," the solicitor general said in the document dated November 8. A ruling by the Court of Appeals is pending. Ressa has been a staunch critic of President Rodrigo Duterte and his government's

16:13 TheStar.com Martin Regg Cohn: Here’s why Doug Ford won’t congratulate the Ontario-born winner of the Nobel Prize for economics

This just in — just not noted by Doug Ford: The Nobel Prize for economics has been awarded to Ontario-born academic David Card. Congratulations came first from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, followed quickly by a public salute from the leader of Ontario’s loyal Opposition, Andrea Horwath. Yet not a peep, as yet, from the premier. When I asked his office why not, no answer. Why has Ford lost his tongue over a global triumph? What’s not to like about the latest, greatest contribution to economics? After all, Ford is quick to boast about the province’s wealth of world-beating human talent. Is not a Nobel Prize a valid proof point, or personal vindication, for a premier who tells the world that our classrooms produce world-class graduates? Educated at Queen’s University, born and raised near Guelph (not unlike another renowned economist, the late John Kenneth Galbraith), Card has been praised in every quarter this week. Yet he remains

15:29 RFI.fr Trio win Nobel Economics Prize for 'natural experiments'

Canadian David Card, Israeli-American Joshua Angrist and Dutch-American Guido Imbens on Monday won the Nobel Economics Prize for insights into the labour market and "natural experiments", the jury said. The researchers were honoured for providing "new insights about the labour market" and showing "what conclusions about cause and effect can be drawn from natural experiments", the Nobel committee said in a statement. Half of the 10-million-kronor ($1.1 million, one million euro) prize went to Card, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, who was born in Canada in 1956, "for his empirical contributions to labour economics." Card's work has focused on labour market effects of minimum wages, immigration and education. The other half went jointly to Angrist, 61, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Imbens, 58, a professor at Stanford, "for their methodological contributions to the analysis of causal relationships." They demonstrated how precise

The Nobel Economics Prize on Monday wraps up a Nobel season characterised by surprising picks, with a number of women in with a chance of scooping the traditionally male-dominated prize. Macroeconomics, health and labour markets are some of the favourite topics ahead of the announcement, according to experts interviewed by AFP. The final prize of the year, officially the Sveriges Riksbank (Sweden's central bank) Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, will be announced at 11:45 am (0945 GMT). This Nobel season, only one woman has won -- Philippine journalist Maria Ressa who won the Peace Prize on Friday -- while the economics prize has so far only been awarded to two women in history, Elinor Ostrom in 2009 and Esther Duflo in 2019. American Anne Krueger, formerly the number two and briefly the managing director at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), as well as a former Vice President for Economics and Research at the World Bank, is one possible winner.
